Nothing gold can stay - The Remains of Summer


'Nothing gold can stay' - a poem by Robert Frost. It won him the Pulitzer prize for poetry in 1924. Here's the poem :

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

This contest is an apparent tribute to the short, meaningful masterpiece.

Submit poems that talk about things that don't last forever. Love, beauty, youth, anything in that context. If possible, mention Frost's poem in the author's notes.
